I finished my Sam Russell dulcimore replica exactly 81 years after Mr.Russell finished his prototype!  You can see photos of his in L. Allen Smith's Catalogue, on page 52 (D15).  It's made of black walnut, with a rosewood nut and bridge, birch accents, full-width staple frets set in a mean-tone scale, and Perfection pegs.  It was quite a project!
